Black Bean Burgers with Mango Salsa


Last weekend I went to Williamsburg.  I have been a few times before, but it is always a fun city to visit.


There is a section of the old part of town that has been converted into colonial Williamsburg.  You enter the shops and see people dressed up in 1770s garb and practicing a time appropriate trade.

Panang Tofu Curry


I'm not going to lie to you; this doesn't look like a very delicious curry.  It is a little bit monochromatic.  Looks can be deceiving.  This tasted better than it looks.


I have made some great curry recipes on this blog.  I have made chicken Prik King, Matter Paneer, beef and vegetable green curry, and Japanese curry rice.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes with Reese's Pieces and Chocolate Chips


I made these pancakes the day after returning to visit my family.  I hadn't had time to go to the grocery store, but had all I needed to make pancakes.



One of the wonderful things about pancakes is that most of the ingredients are basic items always in my pantry.  I usually don't have to make a trip to the grocery store to get the items to make pancakes.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie for One


Today was a scorcher.  It was hot and humid.  Unfortunately, I also rode my bike to work today.


Needless to say, I was very thirsty when I got back to my apartment.  I enjoy riding my bike to work, but it is much more pleasant in the Fall and Spring.

Tomato and Artichoke Gnocchi


I went to a fun Thai restaurant yesterday.  The restaurant doesn't have a set menu.


Each person pays a set amount, and they serve you whatever they made that day.  They served us multiple  dishes.

Green Beans with Tomatoes, Olives, and Eggs


I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Fourth of July.  I went to a beach in a neighboring state.  The temperature was prefect, but it was a little too humid in my opinion.


I didn't end up watching any fireworks.  We left the beach too early, and by the time we got back to the city, I didn't feel like making another trek to see the closest firework display.  I'm a little lazy.

Giant Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie


Chocolate chip cookies are wonderfully delicious.  They are one of my favorite treats.  


It is a little dangerous having a tasty single serving cookie recipe.  I can now have a home made cookie in around 20 minutes.
